Sunday Dinner at The Forresters Arms, Kilburn
The boyfriend and I have been on the hunt for a new pub to frequent for Sunday dinner for a while now as our previous haunt was handed over to new owners and the food just wasn’t the same after that. After a few failures we have finally found a new pub in Kilburn (near Thirsk and the white horse) called The Forresters Arms and OMG.
I chose the beef sunday dinner and for £9.95 you can’t really go wrong. Fluffy mash, a massive Yorkshire pudding and tender beef, fresh vegetables, flavoursome gravy and peppered* roast potatoes. Jesus H Christ I’m not kidding when I say I was in carb heaven – I could have easily eaten another portion.
However instead of ordering for a second Sunday dinner (that would have been ridiculous), I instead opted to peruse the dessert menu before settling on the chocolate fudge cake with ice cream and shortbread crumble – which was another winner despite my tummy groaning at me by the time I scraped the last few morsels into my gob.
As the sun was shining we ate our meal outside and it was just one of those really nice days. Good food, good company, good conversation…Oh and we also witnessed a middle aged fella going home in a JCB digger. Only in Yorkshire eh?
One of the best things about living in North Yorkshire – apart from the beautiful greenery and the crisp air – is definitely the abundance of country pubs and I’m so lucky that I get to live in such an awesome place.
Can any of my fellow Northerners (ideally based in North Yorkshire) recommend any other Sunday dinner spots? I’m always on the lookout for a new place to grab some grub!
*(Fyi, peppered roasties? Total game changer).
